Help on different Screen Sizes, Fetching Data and Streaming Media

[ Edited ]

Hi fellow devs.

Am currently working on a BB 6+ app and i am having some issues with the different devise screen size.

I want a image to display towards the bottom of the screen on 9780 it is displaying perfectly well but on 9800 the image is displaying perfectly well but the main problem is there is a lot of space below the image.


Would like to know if i can set image size based on the devise screen size.


Would like to know if i can fetch an image on a remore server through JSON and display it in my BB app. Would also like the image to be refreshed every 60secs, i.e. every 60 seconds a request will be sent to the remote server for a new image to be displayed.

Know this can be done in JSON but don't know how to get it done.


Thirdly can I stream an audio in a webworks apps. I plan on using jwplayer or jplayer to achieve this i will just pass the mp3 streaming link to the audio link.


Can this be achieved or BB webworks apps can't stream audio.
